Founded in 1961, the peer-reviewed Journal of British Studies (JBS) is dedicated to the advancement of scholarly understanding of British history and culture from the Middle Ages through the present. Drawing on both established and emerging approaches, JBS presents scholarly articles and book reviews by authors who wish to share their ideas on British society, politics, law, economics, and the arts. Explorations in the history of the British Isles and the British Empire may be conceived in the broadest way chronologically, geographically, and thematically, and put British experience in European, comparative, transnational, and global contexts. The Journal publishes the work of scholars with an established international reputation and offers a prominent forum for younger scholars. Contributions are aimed both at specialists and non-specialists.
